Hi,

 Last year I bought a Hornby Sentinel diesel cheap. I was struck by how similar the basic diamensions were to it's S&D grandfathers, so I thought about a conversion, out came the razor saw and Plasticard. I made a basic cab, but stalled on how to form the main part of the body. I recently picked up the project again and over the few weeks I have been putting together a cad for 3d printing. I started with just the basic shape intending to add the cab and details with plasticard. but got a bit carried away. I not certain it will fit my stripped down Hornby chassis, if it does the wheelbase will be 2mm over. Someone elsewhere suggested that I mount it on a HighLevel QuadDrive. But I will try and get it onto the Hornby first.

I will post again when I get the samples back.

I am using tinkercad, It's very easy, this is the first thing I have ever drawn. The test print arrived yesterday, and looking at that it taught me a lot about how to design for printing.20200417_095021.jpg.6e9eebaa06ebc5fd1d8900e1e799bd5d.jpg

Further to my earlier post I have done some more work to the Sentinel CAD, (thanks to Roger O'Neil for loan of official drawing) I have now designed it to (hopefully!) fit the High Level QuadDrive chassis. I have taken some of the details off the main sub assemblies to be separate parts. and also drawn the side frames. Only things left to do are cab steps & brake gear, but I will wait for the chassis to arrive before I start that.1662909786_ScreenHunter_84May_1601_56.jpg.3adc051e83330c771ef1291e5e1d98ce.jpg369636239_ScreenHunter_86May_1601_57.jpg.bd5d31b3b9bb83d0ca9377c4c43b5f98.jpg
